It’s a terrible experience when you’re enjoying a video or music on YouTube and you’re suddenly interrupted by a blaring ad. SponsorBlock solves this problem in a highly effective and original way. 

SponsorBlock - Skip Sponsorships on YouTube by Ajay Ramachandran

Easily skip YouTube video sponsors. When you visit a YouTube video, the extension will check the database for reported sponsors and automatically skip known sponsors. You can also report sponsors in videos.

Leveraging the power of crowd sourced information to locate where—precisely— interruptive sponsored segments appear in videos, SponsorBlock learns where to automatically skip sponsored segments with its ever growing database of videos. You can also participate in the project by reporting sponsored segments whenever you encounter them (it’s easy to report right there on the video page with the extension). 

SponsorBlock can also learn to skip non-music portions of music videos and intros/outros, as well. If you’d like a deeper dive of SponsorBlock we profiled its developer and open source project on Mozilla Distilled

We hope one of these extensions enhances the way you enjoy YouTube. Feel free to explore more great media extensions on addons.mozilla.org
